My Beatles Compilations...

I have made three Beatles' compilations - one for early Beatles, one for middle Beatles, and one for late Beatles - with each compilation fitting on one 80-minute disc.

A few notes before I show my compilations:

1.You will see that the running time for the early Beatles disc is considerably shorter than the other two(which take up pretty much their whole respective discs). The songs were just shorter in that period, and I wasn't about to put twenty minutes worth of songs that didn't deserve to be next to the greats just to fill up the disc.

2.Yes, I used the short version of Hey Jude on the late Beatles disc. I had. It was the only way to fit everything I wanted to fit on to it.

3.I tried hard to establish a good song-to-song flow on these compilations. I didn't want any jarring transitions. That was one of the two big criteria for my running orders, the other being that I wanted to stack the biggest of the big hits late in each compilation, to give each compilation a feeling a building up to said hits.

On with it...

I Need You would have been nice to have had on it. Hugely overlooked little pearl.

and the recent Beatles releases Real Love and Free as a Bird are pretty good too

It's called time limits...I had one second to spare on the late Beatles compilation...Lady Madonna and Get Back had to be two of the casualties. There really isn't anything that I would cut to make room for them. Would you cut anything for them?

Everything else you mentioned would go on the middle Beatles compilation and I had 1:11 to spare on that. Not enogh room for any of them.

I'd cut I Want You (She's So Heavy), it's a good tune but I'd rather have Lady Madonna and Get Back.

as for the others, I haven't heard Girl, Taxman, And Your Bird Can Sing, and Think for Yourself. So I can't I really say.

and time limits that's why I dislike cds

Oooh, see, I absolutely love I Want You(She's So Heavy). I thinmk it's an incredible song. I couldn't justify dropping an incredible song for two good-but-not-great(imo) songs.

As for the fact that you've never heard Girl, Taxman, And Your Birdcan Sing, and Think For Yourself...

Good tracklisting. It's a daunting task, trying to make a "definative" Beatles CD, or 3. They had very little filler on their albums.

One thing I know is that Beatles compilations are impossible. There are simply too many great songs.

Without looking to check what the difference in time is to see if it would work, I'd personally have Get Back, a number one hit and one of their best known songs, on Disc 3 over Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, which to me isn't deserving. A nice enough track, but kind of silly - perhaps it's just me.

I'd also consider the Let It Be...Naked version of Across The Universe, the best version of that around without the wildlife intro or the background singers.

The whistling birds and background vocals are what make the Past Masters version of Across The Universe so orgasmically amazing

Ask Zoots. He'll tell you.
